Jotun, the world #1 supplier of protective coatings, set to employ its revolutionary Hull Skating Solutions on several newbuilds.
The new robotic technology from Jotun, Hull Skating Solutions (HSS), promises greener hull performance and will be especially beneficial during fit out, when vessels tend to experience greater fouling due to being stationary for long periods.
HSS comprises the Jotun HullSkater, its new SeaQuantum Skate antifouling, and an advanced computer algorithm to monitor hull condition.
The new system promises to deliver the holy grail of an always-clean hull. In addition to improving performance and reducing emissions, it may also help to reduce the spread of invasive species.
